Song Lyric Sunday – Cowboy/Western – “The Git Up”

“Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)”



Trust me to come up with something different! My 9-year-old grandson introduced me to this song and the dance about a month ago. It’s not exactly the Wild West, but it’s fun doing the “cowboy boogie.” Written by American singer/songwriter/record producer Blanco Brown, The Git Up was released in May, 2019 and has been described as “the next viral country rap song.” Brown filmed himself in an Atlanta-area trailer park doing a country line dance which was later used in the music video. In a recent radio interview Brown referred to his music style as “trailertrap,” and his music label is, in fact, TrailerTrapMusic.

The Git Up debuted as Number 66 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and reached Number 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart after 5 weeks on that chart.



Right now
I just need you to get real loose
Get comfortable
Grab your loved ones or grab your love partner
And if you’re by yourself no worries
Just follow after me

Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)


Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down, take a sip with it
Now lean back, put your hips in it
(Whoo, whoo, whoo) let’s have some fun

To the left, to the left now (to the left, to the left)
To the right to the right (to the right)
Now take your left hand and put it on your side (put it on your side)
Go on, roll your shoulders (roll your shoulders)
Do the slip and slide (do the slip and slide)
This next part’s my favorite part ’cause it’s time to shine

Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down, take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it
It’s simple, you can do it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

Slide to the left (left), slide to the right (right)
Now cool down, have a good time
Slide to the left, slide to the right
Do the butterfly and have a good time
‘Round, ’round, ’round and ’round you go
It’s time to show out right now and take it to the floor

Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)


Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down, take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

Take it down now, take it, take it down now
Take it down now, take it, take it down now
(To the right) Bring it up now, bring it, bring it up now
Bring it up now, bring it, bring it up now
(To the front) Take it down and crisscross
Bring it up now crisscross
(To the back) Do whatever you like right here (get down)
Just have fun

Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)


Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down, take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo)

That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?
That was not so bad, that was not so bad, was it?

Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (whoo, whoo, whoo)


Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down, take a sip with it
Now lean back put your hips in it (whoo, whoo, whoo)
